, particularly at the clinton years, the effect of scandal is to empower the hard line in each party, obama is going to find a tougher i think to make deals that may alienate some of the congressional democrats while he needs them to defend them against the republicans and on the other side voices get louder inside the gop that say the president is bleeding, we don't want to throw him lifelines with any agreements and that could be a shortsighted view for the republicans. it makes it harder to get immigration and the net may not be a positive by 2016. >> and i want to talk about the obama economy. this is what it looks like now, the labor force participation right 63.3 pretax, income up 2% in the past year, 5% over the past two years, overall the economy grew just 2.5% in the first three months of the year, but deficits dropping, plunged 32% in the first half of the fiscal year. housing improving. prices are rising in most areas. consumer confidence we learned is almost at a six-year high. stocks, i don't have to tell you, most of those people in washington have a 401(k) and very well aware
and of course, the president bumped up sarah hall graham and appointing her as part of the irs obama care role. the social contract between the people who pay taxes and the government has been broken by this scandal. is the president capable of fixing it? >> i thi that is the issue here, we have a serious trust issue and the president is trying to distance himself and because it is happening in the walls of the white house, that he ismmune from the blame. but the reality is, he sets the tone for the srgz the massive big government and regulatory state, it is his responsibility. he has a lot of healing to do with the american people who say i will not give bonuses to these people. i don't think a burrcrat in cincinnati woke up and said i will go after the t party group. >> that is an interesting point and stephen miller who was under the grill spoke to this point. we have a sound bite where whether it was mismanagement or partisship. >> i don't believe that partis anship motivated the people engaged in the practices described in the attorney general report. >> this is a definition of partisansh

, the loyal opposition and what they thought of president obama's comments about both the irs scandal and the benghazi talking points controversy which president obama called a sideshow. dana. >> well, as you can imagine, jake, republicans are unsatisfied. i think that's probably the understatement of the year with what the president said about benghazi. let's start there. first and foremost the idea he called it a sideshow from republicans point of view and just in general really doesn't answer the question of why these talking points were changed and more specifically why the white house said it was something that was stylistic really up until last week and hasn't directly answered the question about the fact that al qaeda was taken out, that the idea of this was a protest was still in there, that the president talked about the video at the u.n. a couple weeks later. all of that continued to be part of the white house narrative even though the administration and broader community knew that that was not the case. so those are still questions that republicans are asking. in fact, as t

at the staying power of benghazi as a story, the way it's picked up steam as a scandal, but the obama administration, his senior aides, they regard that of the three big stories we're talking about as the one that's closest to a winner for them, the one where they have a chance to persuade the public at large that it's really just ginned up by republican partisanship. be not fooled. yes, there's been some tougher questioning for jay carney, even for the president, on these subjects, but some of the toughest voices in today's blathersphere, there will be the most weepy laudtory eulogies of barack obama and his presidency. the current stories feeding the politico cycle are done as well. in retirement, barack obama will benefit from an incredibly well-funded, well-coordinated campaign for constitutional enshrinement similar to which we saw after the assassination of president kennedy. >> bill: well, also bill clinton did well in post-spin. you're discounting things, rosen, these things could get a lot worse. >> that's true. >> bill: this isn't the crest of the wave. this wave is starting

." he has written about the various scandals enveloping the obama administration. first of all, charlie, from your standpoint as a reporter how do you think they're handling, their response to all of this? how do you think they're doing? >> i think that has been one of the biggest problems we've seen this week that their responses have been tepid. president obama has been very short of tepid in his rebuke of the various scandals that are sort of emerging. i think that they're, sort of taking half measures is. i think robert gibbs, former press secretary robert gibbs talked about some of this on sunday saying the administration should probably come out and be a little more forceful about it. trying to say, well, we need to wait and find out what happened inside the irs. obviously nobody needs to, you don't want to take immediate, drastic measures without first investigating it but my goodness, you can condemn it with the, i mean, this politicization of one of the most invasive agencies in the federal government, or the most invasive agencies in the federal government, you know, to politi

scandal that president obama discussed today while standing next to david cameron in the white house. the scandal is about how the irs handled that huge influx of new organizations applying for tax exempt status while also engaged in some degree of political activity under this farcical part of the tax code. starting friday, reports have surfaced that the irs and handling these types of claims singled out groups that had the word tea party or word patriots in their name. and while that might reasonably be a way to find groups that were actually mostly interested in political activity rather than social welfare, it is not fair to apply extra irs scrutiny and questioning to those groups who are obviously engaged in political activity on the right if you are not also applying that scrutiny to groups who are engaged in political activity on the left. it is the imbalance, right? and thus far, we have no evidence that they were applying equal scrutiny to groups on the left side of the ideological spectrum. the irs official who on friday apologized for this targeting of conservative groups
